Public Health and COVID-19


We are committed to resuming full operations only when it is deemed safe and in the best interest of our community.  We remain engaged with state and local officials and our community partners in developing and implementing strategies for re-opening in the safest manner possible this summer.  Your health, along with the health of our staff and artists, are our primary concerns at this time.

To best ensure the health and safety of our staff, artists, and community, we have engaged a medical advisor and full-time certified COVID-19 Compliance Officer for the 2021 season.  Additionally, all senior staff members have received COVID-19 compliance training.  All staff and artists undergo daily health screenings, and twice-weekly testing.  We have increased cleaning and sanitization of our facilities.  All rehearsals and performances are conducted under the guidelines of the Actors’ Equity Association, which include strict requirements for masking, physical distancing, and sanitization.

When attending a performance at WHAT…

-Effective August 13, 2021, in accordance with regulations mandated by the Town of Wellfleet, mask use is required of all audience members regardless of vaccination status when attending a performance.  Masks are provided for those who may need one.

-Please practice social distancing.

-Hand sanitizing stations are provided throughout our venues.

-If you are not feeling well or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 as defined by the CDC, have been exposed to anyone with the virus within the last 14 days, or have been advised to self-quarantine within the last 10 days, please delay your visit to a later time and contact us at 508-349-9428 to discuss rescheduling options.

-To enable contact tracing, should that be necessary, all ticket holders will be required to provide their contact information at the time of purchase.

-We strongly encourage patrons to purchase tickets in advance of their performance, and to opt for the e-ticket or print-at-home option at the time of purchase.  We apologize that Will-Call tickets will not be available this season.


Please note: as the conditions of the global health pandemic are ever-evolving, these guidelines are subject to change and will be updated accordingly.
